On Friday, July 23, the Rustin Cross Country Team held its first “All-Knighter '' where 36 Rustin students & alumni on 4 teams competed in a 12 hour continuous relay event on the track starting at 8 pm and ending at 8 am Saturday morning. The winning team ran over 100 miles overnight and all 4 teams collectively ran almost 400 miles. The event raised $300 for Safe Harbor of West Chester https://safeharborofcc.org/.Sophomore Madison Vassilokopoulos was chosen as a young ambassador for the Henrik Lundqvist Foundation last December. Lundqvist was a longtime goalie for the New York Rangers. As part of this honor, Madison is now doing her final service project. Madison has chosen Valley Youth House, which is such an impressive and important local charity. Attached is the link which describes their mission. All funds go directly to Valley Youth House. https://www.facebook.com/donate/364151178538447/
